This place is two stories of "stuff". Furniture, coins, bric a brac, glassware, crockery, prints and paintings. I have got quite a few "middle of the road" antiques here at a good price. Lots to see.

Every time I visit family in Devonport I make a trip to the antique emporium. I usually spend an hour or so just wandering around looking. I am also always impressed by the relatively low prices (compared with Melbourne antique shop prices)!

Amazing variety of all things antique. Some very interesting items and one of the best second-hand book sections I have seen anywhere. The best place to get a quality Huon pine platter board at an affordable price. Highly recommended.

We thought we would have a quick look, this place is incredible! 2 HOURS later we left. There is so much to look at, whether you want a trip down memory lane or need an item, or add to your collection this place has it all. A must see place.

If you haven't been here then go! It's unbelievable - full of treasures & collectables. Don't expect to walk away empty handed. Antiques. Retro. Oriental collectables - from floor to roof - simply fantastic!

Had time to spare before the Spirit of Tasmania, and wandered into this free attraction. It is a 3-storey shop but I'm not sure who buys most of the items. I find the atmosphere to be more of a gallery/ museum. Did not stay long as we had a toddler with us, and we were highly concerned that he might... More
